Technology Area Dynamic Interfaces

The business area deals with surfaces in motion including biological systems and combines the expertise of senior scientists with a strong background in tribology and colloid and surface science.


We look at:

  • Adhesion
  • Friction
  • Wear
  • Tribology

This is relevant for moving systems in motors and machines as well as for medical devices and oral and ocular systems


Tactile Perception

A key focus is tactile perception in which we correlate measurable parameters of adhesion and friction to what people actually feel.


Business opportuinities in:

  • Personal and home care, including hair and oral products
  • Food industry for oral perception
  • Medical implants and antibacterial surfaces
  • Lubrication
  • Adhesives
  • Bearings
  • Ultra low friction and wear surfaces.   


We conduct applied contract research and offer consultation services.
